As much as I love trying out new denim brands, there's only one that I'm truly loyal to: Levi's. Original, I know. But there's a reason why the more than 150-year-old denim brand is still beloved by so many. Simply put, the jeans it produces have a better fit, are made of better materials, and age better than any of the ones its competitors make—period—especially when it comes to its OG pair, the 501s. While you shouldn't really need more proof of their superiority if you ask me, I'll give it to you anyways. 

Hailey Bieber, who's probably tried every single pair of elite jeans on the market, always seems to come back to her 501s. This latest time, she wore a vintage pair from Orlee Weisberg's L.A.-based vintage denim brand Denim by Orlee, which are purposely oversize and therefore sit low on Bieber's waist. She paired the jeans with a blue-and-white striped Loewe polo worn tucked in, a Previously Known leather bomber jacket, and Bottega Veneta Westerncore mules. It's a combination that feels extremely 2023 despite her jeans being originally designed way back in the 1800s. Further adding to its modern aesthetic, she wore arguably this year's most popular sunglasses, Saint Laurent's SL 557 Shade, and Miu Miu's Wander Matelassé bag, a style the Italian brand re-creates season after season.
